In the first part of the interview with Carmen Simon of Rexi Media, we discussed her recent research on ways of making business presentations more memorable.
In this second part, we turn to the implications of her findings for the creation of eLearning content.
Dr Carmen Simon, joint founder of Rexi Media is a cognitive scientist who applies the latest neuroscientific research findings to corporate presentation skills. A frequent keynote speaker at conferences in North America, Europe and Asia, Carmen holds doctorates in instructional technology and cognitive psychology, and was formerly in charge of eLearning Research and Development for AT&T.
She is currently researching what helps people to remember and is working on a forthcoming book, “Impossible to Ignore: A scientific approach to influencing other people’s memory and decisions”.
In this third part of our series of behind-the-scenes posts, we’ll be interviewing Simon Birt, a recent addition to the eFrontPro team, who is in charge of the product’s global business development.
Hiring an online instructor or a facilitator is one of the most significant decisions you may make for your newly launched course. Be wary of face-to-face instructors eager to teach your online courses. Online teaching is not the same as face-to-face instruction. It requires certain personality traits that help an individual succeed in the online medium.
Online instruction naturally demands more online contact hours than face-to-face instruction. Candidates should also be able to express themselves better in writing. They should be prepared to provide on-going support beyond the office-hours indicated in their job description.
